Speaking to students at St Clare's High
School, Taree, Director of Catholic
Schools, Ray Collins, explained that his
background was in primary teaching and
leadership of primary schools before
moving into educational administration.
"I always enjoy visiting our secondary
schools and when I do, I'm happy to just
be a student."
Mr Collins was as good as his word,
participating conscientiously in Hospitality
-- julienned carrots anyone? -- Drama, Art,
English, Music, History, Photography and
Studies of Religion, where, ironically, the
topic of the day was Islam.
Reflecting on his two-day visit to St
Clare's, Mr Collins enthused about the
high standards students were achieving
and the widespread use of technology
throughout the school. "As I marvelled
at the creative genius of young artists,
photographers and musicians, and was
bamboozled by the complexities of Year
12 Maths, I witnessed the beauty of being
a teacher and the enthusiasm of young
people for their learning."
While at St Clare's, the Director took the
opportunity to congratulate the school's
orators who had returned from the
Diocesan Secondary Public Speaking
Competition with the trophy for the best
overall school. Students who excelled
included Emily Banks, Emily McKendry,
Bella Blenkin, Sarah Ward, Mathew Heiss
and Luke Strong.
Teacher-coach Jenny McKendry was
thrilled with the outcome. "I'm a big
believer in encouraging the students to get
up and speak. At some stage everyone
needs to be able to do so."
